An extremely spacious and well-equipped holiday cottage with a lovely big garden with swings, slide and goal posts, so very suitable for children of all ages. We were particularly impressed that a large variety of beach equipment and toys was provided for the use and enjoyment of guests. In a lovely setting with great views all round. The owner wasRead more even kind enough to invite our tractor-mad 2 year old grandson to sit in his tractor! This property is a real home from home. Hide
